Hiddleston, HBO Respond To Recent Stories

British actor Tom Hiddleston has responded to the recent petition created by fans to see his character Loki from the Marvel Studios films get his own standalone movie.

Participating in an online Twitter chat yesterday, Hiddleston was asked about the petition and future appearances beyond the upcoming “Thor” sequel of his villain character. He said:

“I am flattered and amazed. Really and truly. It means the world that you love the character so much. ‘Thor: The Dark World’ is, definitively, the only one on the slate for now. But… never say never.”

Meanwhile, HBO CEO Richard Plepler has commented on Alberto Belli’s video “It’s not porn, it’s HBO” which went viral last week and has clocked up over 2.5 million views.

Plepler calls the vid a nice compliment, and tells The Huffington Post: “The guys who did this did great work. I laughed. I take it in the same manner in which it was intended, with a lot of humor.”
